10th District Voters

An image of the soon-to-be-constructed Glenview Public LibraryIn doing my reporting on the race for Illinois’ 10th Congressional District, I visited the Glenview Public Library. Every Friday, a group of about a dozen people meet there to discuss current events. They’re a pretty tight-knit bunch, and most everyone was up to date on the race between Mark Kirk and Dan Seals. Here’s an interview I did with locals Evelyn Tyner and Gwen Tessing, who are regulars at the current events discussion. evelyn-and-gwen-raw_081017_ta Also, post-debate, I ran into Zack Sills in the halls of Deerfield High School. He’s a senior there and says he will be voting for the first time in this election. zack-sills-raw_081019_ta_high-school-senior
